A woman in Adana has been taken into custody on suspicion that she had
four people, two of them her cousins who attend a university, beat her
boyfriend after he broke off their relationship.
Mustafa Akçalı was beaten to within an inch of his life and thown into the
garden of a hospital. Based on his statement, police took the woman and
four others into custody. Akçalı received treatment for serious injuries at
the hospital where he had been abandoned and fingered his ex-girlfriend
Zeynep Ç. for the crime.
Akçalı claimed that Zeynep had run up charges totalling 6,500TL on credit
cards he gave her but when he asked her for the money she threatened him.
He went on to say that he was tortured at the house he was taken to and
that 700TL was stolen from him.
The police then went into action and determined that the suspects had gone
to Mersin for a holiday after the kidnapping-beating-torture incident. Upon
their return to Adana they were arrested. Among those detained were
Mustafa E. (43) who works in a bank, university students Veysel Ç. and
Ebubekir Ç., postal worker Zeynep Ç. and teacher Süleyman K. Only one
of the suspects admitted guilt to police, while the others claimed to have
had no involvement.
